According to recent figures, the beaches of European holiday destinations are the cleanest in the world.

Spain has defended its title for two years in a row after winning the crown for the first time in 2022.

In total, there are 628 coastlines awarded the Blue Flag, more than any other country in the world.

The flags are distributed to the cleanest beaches at the beginning of summer and taken down at the end of summer.

By renewing the awards in this way, those responsible for the program want to ensure that the beaches always remain up to date.

Spain seems to make no compromises when it comes to beach cleaning, and its conscientious efforts are rewarded by the large number of blue flags throughout the country.

Luxury travel magazine Conde Nast Traveller said: “With over 600 pristine coastlines, Spain won a Guinness World Record for most Blue Flag beaches in 2022 and has now held the record for two years in a row.”

Of the 600 suggestions, the publication suggested its favorite for a pristine bay in Spain.

They continued: “One of the cleanest and most beautiful beaches in Spain is Burriana Beach in the southern Spanish resort of Nerja.

“This dark golden sand beach has sun loungers for rent, well-maintained restrooms, a diving area and even a library. It is surrounded by a promenade full of souvenir stalls, shops and a variety of restaurants.”

However, there are 628 places to choose from and there are many more that tourists can visit.

Barcelo claims: “Wherever you go on the Spanish coast, you will come across the perfect destinations for an unforgettable summer holiday.”

This list includes places like Isla Antilla in Huelva.

Described as being “surrounded by natural beauty”, the site has facilities such as toilets, sunbeds and a sailing school, so holidaymakers can really enjoy their holiday there to the fullest.

Barcelo also recommends a visit to La Barrosa beach in Cadiz, which they describe as “the epitome”.

They added: “Cádiz is known for being perfect for beach bar lovers, surf fans, nature lovers… pretty much everyone.”

The bay of Cala Ferrera in Mallorca and Cap Blanche in Alicante were also on their list of the most beautiful beaches in Spain.

Rounding out the top 5 list of destinations with the most Blue Flag beaches are Greece in second place (596) and Turkey in third place (551).

Behind these three are Italy (457) and then France (403).
